Jack (Anton Yelchin) is a 15-year-old boy going through puberty. When his parents Anne (Stockard Channing) and Paul (Ron Silver) divorce, his world starts to fall apart. While on a fishing trip with his father, Jack learns that Paul is in a live-in relationship with a man. The youth is bullied at school when other students find out about this.

Jack's best friend Max (Giacomo Baessato) also has problems, because his mother is being beaten by his father. Jack has a crush on another friend, Maggie, and learns that her father is gay. In the end, Jack learns to accept his father and his homosexuality.
